"Invisibility glasses" block facial recognition software
Fugitives/private citizens, rejoice! Thanks to the anti-virus company AVG, a prototype for "Invisibility Glasses" can now block face detection software. By using infrared LEDs and prismatic, reflective cubes, which obscures the cameras' ability to pick up facial details. AVG explains:
"The idea is to place infrared LEDs inserted around the eyes and the nose areas. Since the infrared lights are completely invisible to human eyes, they are only detectable by cameras which are sensitive to the wavelengths of these LEDs. They claim to break face detection when the lights are on."
But don't get too excited, because AVG also says that the glasses will not be on the market anytime soon.
